Owens-Illinois, Inc. reported its fourth quarter and full year 2005 financialresults."We are delighted with our ability to generate significant cash flow and reduce debt in the fourth quarter and full year. However, continued inflationary pressures have negatively impacted our underlying earnings.

In addition, earnings were impacted by our decision to temporarily idle production in certain areas to balance fourth quarter supply with demand, consistent with the Company's plan to operate with lower inventories going forward. Furthermore, we recorded three large non-cash charges during the quarter related to our Critical Accounting Estimates. That said, the excellent cash result is testimony that we are making strides in our culture shift to focus on cash performance," said Steve McCracken, O-I Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
